Yesterday I was craving a sweet treat and came up with these. I love vanilla and caramel flavors so I stuck with those, but if you like chocolate, I definitely suggest sprinkling chocolate chips on top of this.

This paired really nicely with Earl Grey tea, and they were super decadent.

Ingredients
  

Caramel Sauce

  • ¼ cup butter
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk + 1 tbsp
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 375.
  • Combine the shortbread ingredients in a food processor. Blend for about a minute. You want the flour to be fine and completely incorporated.
  • Butter a baking dish (or use coconut oil as I did).
  • Press the shortbread down firmly and evenly.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes.
  • While it’s baking, combine the ingredients for the caramel in pot on medium-high heat.
  • Continually stir with a wooden spoon.
  • The mixture will thicken and become a dark brown. I took mine off a little too soon, it even lightened in color.
  • Pour the caramel over the shortbread and let it cool in the fridge for about a half hour.

Notes

If you like chocolate, I definitely suggest sprinkling chocolate chips on top of this.
